Dump The Duties: Add your voice


The Commission has taken significantly longer to conclude this review than the seven months that were originally promised and our members have suffered as a result – the duties have been in place for more than three years now. I am considerably disappointed to see that they have ignored the concerns of importers, retailers and consumers. We have, of course the right to respond, but ultimately it is up to the EU Member States to decide whether the duties continue and I appeal to them to take the only course that is proper; reject the proposal and prevent the continuation of duties". Ferry den Hoed, president of the Foreign Trade Association
